Winemaker Notes

The beautifully terraced volcanic soil slopes of this property reside in Oakville's western foothills. The 11-acre site faces due east and is the recipient of cool morning sun. Vecina, which appeared with the 1999 vintage in the inaugural Bond release, is always powerful, intense and savory. Vecina's other hallmarks are blackberry fruit, with wild forest floor and mineral associated overtones.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 100
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A perfect wine, the 2007 Vecina provides a prodigious display of blackberries, charcoal, black currants, burning embers and a La Mission-Haut-Brion-like hot rock/gravelly character. The most tannic as well as most concentrated and layered of the 2007s, this is a long-term, but utterly brilliant wine. In many ways it reminds me of the Harlan Estate itself given its prodigious build and potential for extended longevity. It merits 4-5 years of bottle age and should drink well for three decades thereafter.
WS 94
Wine Spectator
Exhibits a pleasing, dense mix of loamy earth, mineral, graphite and dried currant, with touches of blackberry and wild berry. Full-bodied, deep and structured, ending with gripping tannins and a persistent finish. Very young and closed. To be released spring 2011. Best from 2013 through 2023.
JS 94
James Suckling
A very rich nose of currants, blueberries, raspberries galore, and stones. Full bodied, with layers of velvety tannins and a very pretty finish. On the verge of classic. Pull the cork after 2015.
W&S 94
Wine & Spirits
Vecina grows at a vineyard on the border between Yountville and Oakville. It's tucked into the hills, with Harlan Estate to the north and Dominus to the south, both visible from the top of the steep terraces. The vine roots run 30 feet deep through cracks and crevasses of the compressed sandstone, producing a wine with the discretion and plump richness of the best sites in this sweet spot of Napa Valley. This is floral with spicy red edges to the fruit. There's flavor interest in the tannin, which is layered and seems to hold the wine's essential character. The richness and volume of the oak are incidental; the finesse and length of the fruit are central. A great 2007, this should evolve for a decade or more.

Napa Valley

Red Wine

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
